Illegal Taking of Another's Property

Were you arrested for a theft crime? Theft crimes are classified as the illegal taking of another person's property without their knowledge or consent. There are many forms of theft crimes and depending on the type of crime that you were accused of and the amount of money taken, you may face a misdemeanor or a felony charge. If force or a deadly weapon was used to obtain the items that were stolen, you may be facing other serious penalties as well. If you were arrested, do not hesitate to contact The Romero Law Firm, P.A. today and speak with an Albuquerque theft crimes lawyer regarding your situation and how we can help.

Grand Theft 
Grand theft includes grand theft auto and grand theft firearm. This form of theft is the illegal taking of anything valuing over $499. If there was an armed weapon used to obtain the property, you may be also charged with robbery.

Petty Theft 
Anything taken under the limit of $499 is considered petty theft. Petty theft can also include shoplifting and is commonly charged as a misdemeanor. If you are convicted, you may face jail time and restitution, and risk your crime being elevated to a felony.

Identity Theft 
This is considered a white collar crime. The illegal taking of any person's name, social security or identifying records is a crime in New Mexico. Depending on the amount that was stolen from the victim, this may be treated as a federal offense.
